We spent a week with European youth just like us, debating important issues that affect the EU and us everyday. Over the course of a week, we learned how to draft legislation, reach consensus on difficult issues, how to debate, how to speak in public and how to understand the other side of an argument despite feeling very strongly for your side.

At the end of October this autumn I, together with two other natural science students at IEGS, had the wonderful opportunity to go to Grenoble to visit ESRF, a synchrotron facility. Which obviously is a thing we all talk about on a daily basis. It is an electron accelerator, producing X-rays. Which might be even more confusing.

We, the French 5 and IB French B higher level students at IEGS, went on a trip to Lyon situated in the South West of France. The purpose of the trip was to practice our French skills and to experience French culture. In just four days we did a lot of fun things! We stayed at a beautiful apartment, just like the ones in French movies. The sunrise was visible over the rooftops through the kitchen window, and the sunset from the bedroom window.
